We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

Representative Text

1 Who will join the noble army
Of the mighty King of kings,
When the battle-cry is sounding
And the song of triumph rings?

Who will follow—
Who will follow,
Where His banners proudly wave,
Soldiers of the cross of Jesus
And the cause He died to save?

2 Onward, Christians, strong and earnest,
Bear the sword of truth and right!
Come, while fires of youth are burning,
Come, while shines the morning light! [Refrain]

3 In His Name, for right and justice,
Now advance, ye soldiers true!
In His Name, and for His glory
Wake the battle-song anew! [Refrain]

4 All for Christ and His sweet service,
Young and old, we enter in!
In His Name, so strong and holy,
All who bravely fight will win! [Refrain]
